Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has told Juventus and Inter that Juan Camilo Zuniga is not available for transfer.
Although the wing-back’s contract will expire in 2014, the Azzurri are ready to hold on to him and possibly lose him on a Bosman next summer.
“Zuniga is a Napoli player,” De Laurentiis underlined on Twitter this morning. “He has given a lot to the shirt and he’ll continue to do so.”
Reports suggest that the 27-year-old has already agreed personal terms with the Italian champions, but a deal doesn’t exist between the two clubs.
Today’s Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that Inter are also making an attempt to sign a player who former Azzurri boss Walter Mazzarri knows well.
Napoli signed the Colombian in 2009 after a season with Siena.
